HTML Sandbox
Refreshed 1 July 03 | Various FReepers

Posted on 07/01/2003 9:34:44 AM PDT by TPartyType


Welcome Newcomers!

This Sandbox is devoted to giving you a place to practice basic HTML, and to get some coaching.


So, first things first:

Go to michigander's [ HTML Bootcamp (Cyber patriot training)] and learn there how to change font color, font size, font face, and the like.
THERE'S A WEALTH OF INFORMATION THERE NOT COVERED HERE (so as to avoid duplication).
Learn there also how to post a link and an image, then come back here to practice.

If you're having problems, folks will drop by occasionally to give you pointers and help you troubleshoot.


Boring posts are a crime . . .

So practice here first!


NEWCOMERS TIP: I just reread the FreeRepublic posting guidelines. They're worth a read by all newcomers [click here].


Following is an excellent previous post by Willie Green

But first, HTML advice from the FreeRepublic help page:

Basic HTML
The Free Republic forum uses standard HTML coding techniques. Use <p> to start new paragraphs. You may use <b> to begin bolding and <center> to center text, but please remember to end these items where appropriate with </b> and/or </center>, etc. If you post links or other advanced coding, be sure to test before posting.

Creating new paragraphs is about the only html that most posters ever need, but if you would like to learn more about html you may use any search engine on the internet to find tutorials. Simply search on "html tutorial". Here are links to a couple tutorials that I found:

The Basics

Paragraphs, Line Breaks and Horizontal Lines
A lengthy article or reply can be very tedious to read if it does not contain some very simple HTML formating. Inserting either of the following codes will make your post much more readable:


Character Formatting
Simple special effects may be created using Character Formatting Codes. These codes are used in pairs in the format: <?>words to be formatted</?>, where <?> turns the formatting "ON" and </?> turns the formating "OFF".

Please: ALWAYS turn "OFF" the formatting when you use it.

Some commonly used codes of this type are:

These codes can be "nested" to produce multiple effects at the same time. For instance:

<b><i>Bold and Italic</i></b> produces Bold and Italic


Links
The method for posting a HTML link is fairly simple. The following format is used:

<a HREF="URL">Link Description</a>

where "URL" is the URL address you want to link to (and you gotta use the double quotes), and Link Description is whatever you want to call your link. For example:

<a HREF="http://www.drudgereport.com/">Link to Drudge</a>

becomes Link to Drudge


And another from the same previous post:

<FONT COLOR="COLOR">Sample</FONT> produces colorful text.

"COLOR" is often a Hexidecimal Code for whatever Color you want, but color names are also supported.
Examples:

<FONT COLOR="blue">blue text</font> produces blue text

<FONT COLOR="red">red text</font> produces red text

<FONT COLOR="green">green text</font> produces green text


To: foolproof formatting

Here is an easy way to REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE FORMATTING.

To be sure I turn off the formatting I TYPE THE "OFF" COMMAND AT THE SAME TIME AS THE "ON" COMMAND.

An example:
I want to respond to a line in a post by another brilliant Freeper.
I type < I >""< /I >< BR>
I then "cut and paste" his remarks between the quotes:
< i>" You are a poopy head "< /I>< BR>
And type my equally brilliant response: "No, you're a poopy head!"
The result:

"You are a poopy head"
No, you're a poopy head!

It's very easy to forget to turn off your formatting!
Yes it is!


To: ftrader, deport

Actually, the <ul> tag is for a bulleted list and stands for unordered list. The missing part is the list item tag (<li>) Here's an example:

<ul>
<li>List item #1
<li>List item #2
<li>List item #3
</ul>

Would display:


Finally . . .

Psalm 77
Attendite

God's great benefits to the people of Israel, notwithstanding their ingratitude.

1 Understanding for Asaph. ATTEND, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in parables: I will utter propositions from the beginning. 3 How great things have we heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 4 They have not been hidden from their children, in another generation. Declaring the praises of the Lord, and his powers, and his wonders which he hath done. 5 And he set up a testimony in Jacob: and made a law in Israel. How great things he commanded our fathers, that they should make the same known to their children: 6 that another generation might know them. The children that should be born and should rise up, and declare them to their children. 7 That they may put their hope in God and may not forget the works of God: and may seek his commandments. 8 That they may not become like their fathers, a perverse end exasperating generation. A generation that set not their heart aright: and whose spirit was not faithful to God. 9 The sons of Ephraim who bend and shoot with the bow: they have turned back in the day of battle. 10 They kept not the covenant of God: and in his law they would not walk. 11 And they forgot his benefits, and his wonders that he had shewn them. 12 Wonderful things did he do in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Tanis. 13 He divided the sea and brought them through: and he made the waters to stand as in a vessel. 14 And he conducted them with a cloud by day: and all the night with a light of fire. 15 He struck the rock in the wilderness: and gave them to drink, as out of the great deep. 16 He brought forth water out of the rock: and made streams run down as rivers. 17 And they added yet more sin against him: they provoked the most High to wrath in the place without water. 18 And they tempted God in their hearts, by asking meat for their desires. 19 And they spoke ill of God: they said: Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? 20 Because he struck the rock, and the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed. Can he also give bread, or provide a table for his people? 21 Therefore the Lord heard, and was angry: and a fire was kindled against Jacob, and wrath came up against Israel. 22 Because they believed not in God: and trusted not in his salvation. 23 And he had commanded the clouds from above, and had opened the doors of heaven. 24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them the bread of heaven. 25 Man ate the bread of angels: he sent them provisions in abundance. 26 He removed the south wind from heaven: and by his power brought in the southwest wind. 27 And he rained upon them flesh as dust: and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea. 28 And they fell in the midst of their camp, round about their pavilions. 29 So they did eat, and were filled exceedingly, and he gave them their desire: 30 They were not defrauded of that which they craved. As yet their meat was in their mouth: 31 And the wrath of God came upon them. And he slew the fat ones amongst them, and brought down the chosen men of Israel.

The Daily Psalms:

Douay Rheims Version

 

MATINS: First Nocturn

 

Psalm 44
Eructavit Cor Meus

The excellence of Christ's kingdom, and the endowments of his Church.

1 Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, for the sons of Core, for understanding. A canticle for the Beloved. 2 MY heart hath uttered a good word: I speak my works to the king: My tongue is the pen of a scrivener that writeth swiftly. 3 Thou art beautiful above the sons of men: grace is poured abroad in thy lips; therefore hath God blessed thee for ever. 4 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou most mighty. 5 With thy comeliness and thy beauty set out, proceed prosperously, and reign. Because of truth and meekness and justice: and thy right hand shall conduct thee wonderfully. 6 Thy arrows are sharp: under thee shall people fall, into the hearts of the king's enemies. 7 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a sceptre of uprightness. 8 Thou hast loved justice, and hated iniquity: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 9 Myrrh and stacte and cassia perfume thy garments, from the ivory houses: out of which 10 the daughters of kings have delighted thee in thy glory. The queen stood on thy right hand, in gilded clothing; surrounded with variety. 11 Hearken, O daughter, and see, and incline thy ear: and forget thy people and thy father's house. 12 And the king shall greatly desire thy beauty; for he is the Lord thy God, and him they shall adore. 13 And the daughters of Tyre with gifts, yea, all the rich among the people, shall entreat thy countenance. 14 All the glory of the king's daughter is within in golden borders, 15 clothed round about with varieties. After her shall virgins be brought to the king: her neighbours shall be brought to thee. 16 They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing: they shall be brought into the temple of the king. 17 Instead of thy fathers, sons are born to thee: thou shalt make them princes over all the earth. 18 They shall remember thy name throughout all generations. Therefore shall people praise thee for ever; yea, for ever and ever.

In that meeting, Reagan and the Pope agreed to undertake a clandestine campaign to hasten the dissolution of the communist empire...

Christmas Memories

Each year, when the nights are cold and the days are short, Christians gather together to remember and relive the Christmas story. The Gospels of Luke and Matthew tell a tale full of mystery and surprise. A child is born in an obscure corner of a poor land. He is a child like other children; his parents are people like us; his times are troubled as ours are; the circumstances of his birth — humble, inconvenient, secluded — familiar. Yet the Child was God Himself. His coming divided human history into two parts — that which came before His birth and that which comes after it. He is the center of our faith. And the annual feast of Christmas has become both a spiritual and a social focal point. It’s an occasion to gather as families and communities to remember the coming of Jesus.
